BroadwayJ667 Posted February 27, 2012 Share Posted February 27, 2012 So I've seen a fair bit of people riding this guys jock. I was one of them until I started looking at the film. There are a lot of highlight hits, but there are way too many misses. Today at the combine he was a major disaster. For a guy that has been questioned for his discipline and consistency he has done nothing to dispute those claims. Numbers from the combine today. 5.09 40yd dash, 30 inch vertical, and 8'7" broad jump. All of these numbers are sub-par. Now I'll break down the film for you and show you the real problem 1st play. No real impact on the play, the interior collapsed on the runner, he helped finish off the pile 2nd play. Recognizes the hole, and direction of the runner well. Beats the blocker to the hole, but gets sloppy with his footwork and can only offer an arm tackle. 3rd play. Waits for the play to come to him. Ole's the blocker, of all things and makes a pitiful diving attempt at the tackle. Runner gains extra yards. 4th play. Sheds the blocker, and sees the runner. Does not square up the runner and gets sideways to him. Is able to make a weak attempt at the tackle. 5th play. Taken out by the fullback. 6th play. Good job recognizing screen. Gets chipped by a low blower but is able to defeat the block. Ball carrier dropped the ball hustles to the play. 7th play. Recognizes a delayed run. Stays home in the middle. A bit hesitant to explode into the runner. Second player to make contact, wrestles runner to the ground. Field goal attempt: Offsides penalty 8th play. Man coverage. Finds his man covers well, qb sacked 9th play. Run to his side. Fights through a couple blockers, but runner gains three yards before contact. 10th play. Sits in zone, no impact on play. 11th play. Takes on blocker 5 yards downfield. Takes wrong shoulder to attack the blocker, runner runs opposite side and gains more yards. 12th play. Recognizes cut back run. Shadows the runner and finds him, tackles the runner, poor technique allows the runner to slip for another yard or two. I can keep going but I think you get the point. I liked the kid but the film does not lie. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
